Hey folks, need some guidance on a build. Been wanting to purchase the 20-20 design programs to start using for a small business, but my old laptop just doesn't cut it. Wanting to build a desktop that can handle it.
Here are the minimum requirements they list for the 20-20 programs:
Processor: Dual Core or Quad Core at 2.16GHz or above
System Memory: 3 GB RAM (for 32 bit OS) or 6 GBRAM (for 64 bit OS)
Graphic Card: NVidia GeForce or ATI Radeon with 512 MB (3D accelerator)
Resolution: 1280 x 1024
Since that's min, I've got no problem going way above those specs..
Approximate Purchase Date: Within a week or 2
Budget Range: $400-600
System Usage from Most to Least Important: 20-20 design, everyday use
Are you buying a monitor: maybe, have an old one, but resolution is listed at 1440x900, do I need a new one?
Parts to Upgrade: all new pieces, would like to be able to upgrade ram or video card at a later date if I need. Maybe start around 8gb ram, upgradeable to 16 or even 32 some day? Idk, you guys tell me
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Probably Newegg
Location: southern Indiana
Parts Preferences: Prefer Intel
Overclocking: Don't know
SLI or Crossfire: Don't know
Your Monitor Resolution: Again, program lists min as 1280x1024, and have an old at 1440x900, you guys tell me
Additional Comments: 20-20 technologies is what I'm building for, but have used Photoshop lightly in the past, and may use it I the future, but that's not in the immediate plans
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:
